    Hidden gem for great BBQ

    We had a hard time finding dog friendly places to eat and found this gem. The BBQ was delicious and the staff was really friendly. Our dog also enjoyed a sample of the pulled pork and devoured it! We’ll definitely be back!

    Great BBQ.

    We stop here every year at least once. The food is always good and everyone is always nice. We hadn’t been back in 2 years and since then they added outside seating so it works great for brining the doggo with. Didn’t see any water bowls but also didn’t ask since we always have our own water and bowl. The porch is nice and roomy but could use a fan doing to being just a metal roof in the summer. But we definitely recommend.

    Friendly Staff And Great Brisket

    I appreciated the friendly staff and the brisket was awesome! I love places that accommodate my dog Kevin!

    Great Patio

    We stopped here for lunch on a rainy day of our vacation with our well-behaved border collie. Because of the rain, most outdoor seating was unavailable in the area. This place was great because their patio is covered so it was open in spite of the weather. The staff welcomed our pup on a leash while we enjoyed our delicious barbecue. I highly recommend the brisket! We returned to a dry car because we didn’t have to leave the windows down for the dog while we were eating.
